I have no doubt that the pulleysaver will be as good as a rope guide but I’m a bit of an anorak with ocd so it would do my nut in to have an art positioner SJ3 and a pulleysaver 🤦‍♂️ Hence rope guide 😂

 

Same for clothing I’m all arbortec at the moment but that’s about to change given its last-ability.

I use a 2m multisaver as I was too tight to buy the pulleysaver. I use it a lot, for the two uses you have described but also when it's over a union you can set it long which moves your rope away from the stem as you move around and thus saves rubbing below the rings.

I would use a pinto than a hitch climber , rated a lot higher. Hitch climber 36kn pinto 50kn hitch climber is ok on double rope loading but not sure how much I would trust it on a single pull... maybe I’m being well to over cautious!

Its a valid point matty,and id add to the above statement that if the pulley bearing goes on the dmm pulley your takin a header where as the pinto has a becket that would catch your rope in the event of a failure.

Thanks for the answers so far guys.
I'll pop a picture on here of an acquaintance using a sling and a pulley.
Your thoughts much appreciated. Is this safe? Why don't more people do it?IMG-20190123-WA0000.jpeg

That picture looks strange some how.

top harness, petzl zigzag,best karabiners and a makeshift anchor system

I wouldn't be massively comfortable with a carabiner that far away from me as an anchor. 

If my mates sent me that photo or were using that on a job with me, I'd tell them not to, very quickly.

I don't think the proper versions are that expensive for what they do compared to the risk associated with using the wrong equipment IMHO

Ditch the karabiner and use a maillon
